Burnside Plantation Series: Creating a Monarch Way Station Adult Workshop
Meet at the Wagon Shed
With increasing threats and habitat loss, monarch butterflies need our help more than ever. Find out what a Monarch Way Station is and why it is important for the survival of this species. Learn how you can help monarch butterflies by protecting their habitat and planting milkweed and preferred nectar-rich flowers.
About the Garden
Although originally The Children’s Garden, concerns about the decline and threats to our pollinators led to the development of the Pollinator Demonstration Garden. The goal is to educate the public about pollinator preferred plants and practices. The garden is pesticide free, provides pollen and nectar flowers, host plants for caterpillars, water, nesting sites and shelter for our pollinators from early spring to late fall.
